Hi all... I'm a pro-lifer who is addicted to making icons.
Here are my first 3 pro-life icons...
Current Mood: cheerful
The only problem is that the 3rd one really does look like a blob.
Also, from a graphic point of view, the third one is a pain in the arse to read. Especially the "I am not a blob" part.
I think calling them blobs makes it that much easier to not recognize them as children. ( I'm pro-choice, not that it matters, but still ).

The third one looks like an exotic fish.
Yeah, you looked like an exotic fish at one time too.

those icons don't look very good....they're hard to read, well at least the last two are. lame phrases to boot.
I support abortion. Why? Because for a plethora of reasons. One of the reasoning I have is some people should not have children. I am clearly one of them. Seccond reason is a case to save the life of the mother. Sure it's rare, but it does indeed happen. Third, The pro lifers deny this, but before abortion was legalized, It was done back-alley. Mary Davies, a young girl, was a victim of an illegal abortion and died shortly after. The abortion was done by a man named Dr. Spencer.The cousin of Dorothy Allison also recieved a back-alley abortion and bled to death. I spoke to a coroner who told me that he had seen a lot of back alley abortions and the results were gruesome. Once abortion was legalized, They stopped overnight. Back alley abortions weren't really done with coat hangers. They actually were used with dirty, unsterilized hoses or used catheters. Also, About the fetus. In the first trimester, It is an embryo unable to survive outside the body and therefore is connected to the mother and feeds off of her. Like a parasite (Which I'm not saying it is), It needs a host to live. Therefore, It is not formed. I also believe in abortion because the government won't usually sterilize people under the age of 24. I made up my mind quite a while ago that I did not want a kid. So if I want to get my tubes tied, I won't be able to since I'm only nineteen. These are my reasons for supporting abortion. They are circumstantial, of course, as you see. The maintainer of the website of Abortion Facts is a fundamentalist Christian and his "facts" are not true at all. Illegal abortions did happen. The story of Mary Davies is living proof. And by the way, All you pro-lifers should read a book called The Worst Of Times. This book contains the testament of children who have lost their mothers to illegal abortions and also women who are infected or harmed by the back-alley creeps themselves.
Re: Just my twp cents
I am pro-life, and your argument both makes me very sad, but at the same time, it just makes clearer the huge problems with "pro-choice" ideaologies. . .
For one thing, the only semi-valid statement you made was that back-alley, illegal abortions cause a lot of damage to the girls who have them. I KNOW these things happened, and I know how terrible that is. I think it is incredibly sad that young girls would have their lives cut short because of a botched up, illegal, dirty, unsafe procedure. I don't wish that on anyone. However, that isn't a valid reason to legalize abortions. For one, even legal "safe" abortions can have terrible affects on the women. They are incredibly unhealthy, and can lead to future miscarriages, cancers, internal bleeding, infections, and death. Plus, it is more often than not emotionally scarring and damaging to the girls. I often make this analogy. . . Many heroin addicts die from using infected needles, unsafe heroin mixed with other drugs, and from improper use of the drug. Does that mean we should make heroin legal so that junkies can shoot up safely with clean needles and pure heroin?? I don't think so.
Your other reasoning is just ridiculous. . . Since you can't get your tubes tied you should be able to have an abortion?? Have you ever heard of birth control pills, or a condom? Or, if those would fail,adoption??? Or, since you really don't seem mature enough to take responsiblity for your actions, maybe you should not be having sex at all until you are able to be sterilized. I don't particularly want children either, and I am nineteen, the same as you, but I don't feel that if I am stupid enough to screw up and get myself pregnant, my innocent unborn child should have to die to make my life simpler.
And those books and examples you give ignore the fact that those women CHOSE to go see an abortionist. Noone forced them. They also,as sad as it is, have to take responsibility for their actions.
Re: Just my twp cents
ur heroin argument is not good because we should legalize all drugs. i do not do drugs, but if legalize we can eliminate the national debt, some crime, and drugs will be safer ever if anyone who does them is stupid. legalizing drugs wont cause anymore people to do them. im not going to buy heroin if its legal. also, we need to stop arresting people who smoke pot because alcohol and cigarettes are worse for ur health.

Re: Just my twp cents
Perhaps some people should not have children, like unmarried ones for example. But when a baby gets “planted” should it not have life? The life of the mother is important. Yet people die all the time, mothers included. But I’ve never heard of a soldier throwing a child on a hand grenade to save his skin. The fact is the life of the child is as important as that of the Mom. Abortion for any old reason makes the “life of the mother” a convenient excuse. People died from “back alley” abortions, and they die and are maimed from legal abortions too. The abortion clinic standards and their equipment are often not sufficient to treat the “mistakes” that are made in the woman’s womb. As to the embryo, we were all embryos, and would not be alive today with out having BEEN them. There are laws protecting some animals and their embryos better than Human embryos. The fact is that believe in God or not human sperm added to an human egg will make a human being, and at what point it becomes human is not important, what is, is that it will be born human barring natural or unnatural death. Many people don’t want “kids”. But if you want sex, beware : children are made when man and woman “hook up”. As for websites and Fundamentalist Christians, the unborn know nothing of them, but would enjoy attacking or defending them as much as you or I given LIFE !!!!!

Re: Just my twp cents
last comment- no, you are not correct. The reason I am choosing to stop arguing is because you aren't going to change my mind nor am I going to change yours. When I meet God? Don't force your religion on me.

man that sure looks like a blob to me.
